For an dinner with a difference, instead of your normal burgers make chicken schnitzel burgers with homemade or store brought buns, homemade coleslaw and a side of fries.


  • 2 large chicken breasts, halved , pound gently to flatten

  • 90 grams panko breadcrumbs

  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese, grated

  • 1 tsp lemon zest, finely grated

  • 1/2 cup flour

  • 1 egg, slightly whisked

  • vegetable oil for shallow frying

  • coleslaw, either homemade or store brought


  • Use a sharp , cut breast in half horizontally. Place fillets between glad wrap and gently pound with a rolling pin. Repeat with remaining fillets.
  • Combine breadcrumbs, parmesan and lemon zest in a large bowl. Place flour on a plate. Whisk the egg with 1 tablespoon of water in a separate bowl. Dip chicken in flour to lightly dust. Dip in egg , then dip in breadcrumb mix, pressing lightly to coat. Place on a tray and put into the fridge to rest for 30 minutes.
  • Either make your coleslaw or use store brought. Season with salt and pepper. Add dressing and mix well. Set aside.
  • In a large fry pan. Heat enough oil to cover the base. Place in pan, cook for 2-3 minutes each side until golden brown and cooked through. Transfer to a plate, lined with paper towel. Repeat with remaining fillets.
  • Place cut buns and toast in pan. Top with coleslaw. Cut schnitzel in half and top with extra dressing. Serve immediately. Serve with fries.
